I'm from Northern Virginia and I have no experience nor do I have a rig. (currently in the market for one)

My friend got me hooked on overlanding and I'm currently just trying to read up and learn as much as I can before I make the investment into a vehicle and gear.

Hello from Indiana...

Looking to gain knowledge from the OB community and resources here, thanks in advance.

Most of my recent vehicle based adventures in Jeep JKU, Sprinter 170, or rental ride depending on the trip, crew, gear, etc.

P.S. Hopefully someone can help me with updating my member access (#20225) so that I can view the map data. I've updated my profile and posted in the "Have a Member Number?..." thread. Thanks!

Hey everyone. Glad to be here. I'm new to the overland community, but I have been rock crawling and 4 wheeling as well as dirt bikes since I was very young. I have a 1998 Grand Cherokee on 37" BFGs and one ton axles, as well as a fairly stock 2004 FX4 F150. I'm located in Mesa, Arizona and am excited to be a part of this community!

Hello, I’m fairly new in this forum.. I’m from Santa Clarita, CA. Currently own a 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser. Love the outdoors and enjoy nature at its best! Been on a few short overlanding trips - probably between a novice and intermediate, experience wise. Me and my brothers have pretty similar rigs.. we go out together with our families... I am also a photographer so my goal is to capture the milky way galaxy whenever I can during our expeditions.
